Post Sighting: Impreza Wagon w/ WRX bumper

Anybody on this board? It looked like just any normal Impreza with the WRX kit, turning left off Renfrew onto E. Hastings on Tuesday at 1 AM. Maybe it was my eyes or the bad lighting, but it look like it was painted a brighter red than the Sedona Red. As soon as I passed it, I look in the rearview and it was a WAGON! I must say it looked NICE.
I was in the BRP 2000 2.5RS coupe travelling in the opposite direction.

Ovaltine I didn't see you, but the wagon you saw is mine. Well, my car is MY98 and its color is actually brighter than sedona red. The color came with MY98 stock, I forgot the name of the color though...
By the way, I believe Goten has a white one, but never seen his car or pic of the car. Has anyone seen his car?

Oh, of course I remember you, Keiho. Thanks for your advice about shocks at that time. Well, I was supposed to be in Japan this moment,but my application for visa extension has not accepted, so that I can't leave Canada till I get it... Uhmmm, I sent out the form to them in the middle of June!
And about 27th, at this moment, I can't say positively "Yes" for the meeting. I try to manage my time at least for minutes visit.

Ovaltine, you have a weakness for wagons!? Really? When I was looking for a car, I set some points to decide which car I would buy. Affordable and reasonable, good handling, and Japanese or German made. Then I was happened to test-drive Outback Sports. I really loved to drive it, but its price tag exceeded my budget. So I bought lower grade Impreza, which was a wagon. Well what I got with my car is satisfaction.

Oh, no no... I can't leave Canada yet, since I am waiting for an interview with an immigration officer. Why? I don't know... I just wanna extend my student visa, but this time looks like I need to go and have an interview...

I believe the one that I saw is belong to Goten, quite a long time ago. Actually it's a Outback sport, auto, with WRX III stickers. Didn't know is there any mod.

Gambit, that is totally a different car.
I don't think Goten's car got any mod, last time I saw that I believe it's still running stock (or similar) tires!
